Women Up! is a resource-sharing and networking platform for women since 2015. China Anti-Domestic Violence Network was founded in 2017 to centralize resources and organizers in our movement against violence towards women and gender minorities. The event series aims to increase social awareness against violence through both forums and workshops.
Sponsored by the Shanghai Consulate-General of Canada, this will be the first of the event series, hoping to inform and create dialogue regarding violence against women, queer women and trans people. We will showcase 3 prominent leaders in the community who are already conducting work or projects related to domestic violence. Come and be inspired by their stories. Special thanks to all our partners and speakers for their support regarding such an important dialogue!
